If you replace your engine with one that is not exactly the same year or displacement you are asking for problems. The manufacturers are constantly improving performance and efficiency by changing parameters in the computer controlled engine management systems. It will be different for every year and engine size, thus using the computer from say a '91 3.4L to control a '91 3.8L could cause a rich condition or some other issue, timing or high idle, etc.

Not very easily if at all, and why would you want to?
If you mean 3.8 Litre engine, the answer is 200 horsepower, from the factory. 225 lb/ft of torque.
38L is 10.04 US gallons.
The 3.8 engine is similar in all the grand prix 97 to 2003 Follow the top radiator hose to the top of the engine, the place it bolts up to should be your themostat. Remove the hose, take the bolts out (usually two) put the new one in with a new gasket and bolt it back together.

haynes repair manuals are good but you can go to autozone.com and they have online repair manuels as well it a good site for a lot of information on repair work.
it's located on the firewall right in back of the intake
Well, the transmissions are interchangable, so your good there. But if you put a 3.3l in youll have to change the ECM because they have different settings for the 3.8 and 3.3. So if you change the ECM I think youll be ok. My email is RPplayer73@aol.com
They always blow the head gaskets between 70 and 100 thousand miles.
The mass air flow sensor is located in the throttle body housing on the 3800 engine. There should be 4 screws that hold it down to the housing. Once they screws are removed, the sensor lifts off of the throttle body.
Where was the leak coming from? the coolant has some pathways that go to the intake. that's to warm up the air.the most important question is where the coolant was leaking from?
A haynes manual...
You can safely put 2ml into the 10l aquarium
there should be a sticker under the hood of the car that tells you what the gapping should be. .60
76l for the first fish and 38l for each additional fish so 266 litres.
Fuel injected. fuel injected. the 3.8 liter was never carb. it was in the 80's in other GM vehicles
What year is the gtp, if 95 or newer yes, if gtp is in the 80's then no due to pollution restrictions today, and may have to change the computers from each vehicle. Each computer is set to specs for the engine it controls.
There are 460 CID engine swap kits on SUMMITRACING.COM. The 460 is the building "block" for several larger stroker motors. It will take a lot of work. If you have all the necessary parts, it would take the average mechanic at least 6 weeks. Likely more. Unless you're going for a strictly track vehicle, you'd get more bang for your buck with a supercharged 4.6 or 5.0.
Five quarts including filter. My owners manual says 5.75, including filter. My experience agrees with the extra .75 quarts! :)
Divide 10 by 38. _ _ ._ _ 38l 100 38 can't go into 10 so add a decimal+zero Then do your basic division. This was coming from a 6th grader.
Hard to say what a fair price is.Some guys might do it for $100 while others, like me would not do the job, because it will not solve your problem for very long.If those bearing are gone, chances are that the motor will need a complete overhaul. Rather than paying to overhaul an engine, I would buy a long block from advance auto or autozone OR get one from a wrecking yard who will give a guarantee that it runs.Replacing the bearings is just going to be a waste of your money regardless of what someone charges.
It seems it may have been bad gas. After some gas treatment and an oil change it gradually improved in three or four days and then stopped completly.
There is a relay on the top of the compressor that allows the clutch to engage. Check to see if it is bad by removing the relay and use a wire as a jumper while the car is running to see if the clutch engages. If the clutch engages once the jumper is in place then the relay is bad it cost under twenty dollars to replace.
Remove the cowl assembly. It is easy here is how: Remove the wiper arms and remove the 4 little plastic push pins along the drip rail edge under the hood that hold the plastic cowl cover on. If there is an antenna, unscrew that from the base and pop the cowl cover off. Then remove the 5/16ths screws that hold the cowl pan/wiper motor assembly to the vehicle(I believe there are 10 of them). Lift the cowl pan off while paying attention to unplug the wiper motor connector on the driver's side. You will have to steer it out past the hood hinges. Now you have as much room as you need to do anything you want to behind the engine.
